Thanks Yeah it worked a fair bit better than i thought the only downside is youve gotta get the shrimp to come very close to the glass to focus half decently so i just took these of the guys in my breeder. She has got ALOT of eggs compared to another one thats berried ,basically double the amount

Good work, even with the strap/clip in lenses, the object needs to be a few mm away. Good work, and thanks for sharing

      Shrimps will do well with just a sponge filter operated with a air pump, that's the very least you should have in the tank if you intend to keep the shrimps, if you don't intend to keep the shrimps, just feed them to your betta.

      I re-read the post, and I see the shrimp have been moved. As Simon, said, it's best to get the tank at least an air sponge filter.

      I think they have separated the shrimp into their own small tank but the betta is still in the big tank if I have read it rightly?  Simon

      Not a good sign. The fish already has a taste for shrimp. If the shrimp aren't too damaged now, wait till the betta gets hungry.   You need a filter, but more so for your betta. 
    • sdlTBfanUK
      Sorry to hear that putting your shrimps with the betta didn't go well. My first betta couldn't have shrimps either as he would go after them. My current betta is ok though, he gets very close and watches them but nothing else? It would be best to have a filter if you can get one small enough, and if it is adjustable have it on low flow because it is a small tank, the shrimps are fine in flowing slow water,! Are you planning to keep them in this tank long-term or is this tank temporary until you decide where to go next with them? It is possible that some may die from injuries/stress/shock etc, but hopefully they will be ok. Simon
